Same-sex marriages are on hold again in California. A federal appeals court has blocked such marriages in the state until a three-judge panel hears broader questions over the constitutionality of the unions.
Tonight on 360°, we'll take an up close look at the decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals with CNN's Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin. Will the U.S. Supreme Court intervene? We'll ask Toobin what the next step could be in this case that's had up-and down ruling and referendums for years.
Just last week, a federal judge ruled same-sex marriages could resume in California this Wednesday. That came after the same judge, Vaughn Walker, concluded earlier this month in a 136-page opinion that the voter referendum that passed two years ago banning same-sex marriage violated federal civil rights laws. "Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples," Walker wrote.
Also tonight, imagine unplugging your laptop and Blackberry - everything and anything digital in your life - and going on a wilderness trip. That's what five neuroscientists did a couple months ago to study how technology changes the way we act and behave. Two of the scientists will join us to share what they discovered on the journey.
And for tonight's shot, don't miss some remarkable video of tennis star Roger Federer off the court.
